White Hart Latest

As previously reported here, the landlord of the White Hart in New Cross is appealing against the decision of Lewisham Licensing Committee to refuse permission to convert the pub into a lap dancing/striptease club. Lewisham Council is defending the appeal and a date has now been set for the 13th and 14th January 2009 at Bromley Magistrates Court.

Most of the arguments were raised in the original hearing, but if you have significant additional evidence that could affect the outcome of the case you could contact
